Wow. With a 3 million Euro price tag and transport from Ukraine to Germany is extra......and then need no doubt have the front armour cut to meet German Federal law.

Now where did I put my chequebook?

Yes, its the eBay "bootsale" app. 

Not much to go on with the advert though!

I see a final drive sprocket wheel. How much remains of the rest of the vehicle I wonder? The advert appears to say that the turret is off the vehicle...so an internal ammunition explosion? Could have made quite a mess of the interior, not to mention the crew.

One wonders what the law is in the Ukraine, re exporting of stuff like this?

highly unlikely to get out of the country without paying some 'fees' at the border!

I wonder if the Panther is on the 'Russian'/separatist or Ukrainian side of the conflict border. A price in Euro makes me think that it could be in the western zone. Not sure who would be easier to negotiate with - the authorities in Kiev or big brother Bear! I guess it would make UK planning permission looks like child's play and a damn sight cheaper.

Of course, the 'powers to be' might be watching as they do all of the hard work and them swoop in and confiscate 'war-like' materiel. Perhaps the local authorities will end up claiming the remains as a national treasure or even used as a memorial. Just so long as it is saved from the scrap man.

LOL, dig down a few more feet and BAM, Gold Train

say what you guys want will but i liked the Gold train thing, it was fun and I got a great bargain on  all that earth moving equipment, it was FREE :) 

Any news on this panther yet, any internet super sleuths here? I saw it first on the A10 resto FB page, which i'm sure is a member here.

Another panther would be great, but if i understand it it's posted on a German version of Craigslist, which is an odd place for a 3 million Euro tank, and it's been pulled

I first saw it on a response to one of the Weald Foundation Facebook posts.
